Best of the 2014 Oscar Red Carpet

3 Mar

So after nearly 7 hours of red carpet and the actual award show combined (yikes, that is a VERY long time and no wonder my snacks ran out) we have chosen our favorite red carpet looks. While the Film Independent Spirit Awards were awash with color and pattern, the Oscars were more on the muted side with dark gowns and a whole lot of nude metallics on display. Here are our highlights of the red carpet and a couple of bonus shots from the show.

Lupita Nyong'o red carpetStarting with Lupita Nyong’o as she has been the star of this award season and this gorgeous pale blue Prada gown is the perfect dress for the Oscar winner. Nyong’o’s speech was touching and from what I could tell everyone on my Twitter feed had a very blurry screen during this moment. The one divisive aspect was the headband and for the record I am pro this accessory.

Lupita Nyong'o OscarsHere’s an extra shot as it looks stunning in movement and Nyong’o helped design this gown; I would totally want something I could swish like this if given the opportunity.

Kate HudsonNow this is how you do old Hollywood glamour and Kate Hudson’s Atelier Versace gown is oozing with style. The semi-cape is giving me so much life (and it’s a shame she ditched it when she presented) as are the slightly boxy shoulders. The combination of the delicate beading and deep plunge give it that extra oomph; I can totally understand why Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell were beaming when she stepped out on stage.

Amy AdamsI saw some refer to this as boring, but I really like that Amy Adams chosen something as simple and sophisticated as this navy Gucci Première frock. It’s tuxedo inspired and the lapels are such a great detail; it’s the opposite of the plunging American Hustle type gowns we saw earlier in this awards cycle and it’s wonderful.

Karen OO, Karen O you look incredible in black Camilla Stærk. Another plunging neckline and the broach really set it off, plus this is also a little capey so you know I love it. The gold and black geometric clutch adds the right amount of glitz to this ensemble.

The red gown is flowy and spectacular and I love that Koenig’s socks match Karen O’s dress. Excuse me while I go listen to this song on repeat.

Olivia Wilde and Jason SudekisBold statement ahoy – sorry Brad and Angelina (because I’m sure they will be reading), but here is my best dressed couple of the evening. Wilde is wearing a black Valentino column dress with a mock turtleneck and the white open back gives it that something extra. It’s all about monochrome with her accessories and she looks incredible. By accessories I mean her clutch and jewelry, not her baby bump as E! decided this was part of the accessory discussion. Jason Sudeikis is snazzy in Prada and I’m totally digging the beard.

Emma WatsonEmma Watson is shimmering in metallic Vera Wang, going for a pewter hue, rather than all the many nude sparkly affairs that were on trend last night (but none that I really liked). The slight mermaid kick of the skirt and the lighter top turn what could have been a nothing dress into something special. As does the dramatic dark lipstick which I’m coveting quite hard.

And because I’m sure this pairing sparked new real life shippers here is Emma Watson presenting with the always dapper Joseph Gordon-Levitt. You’re welcome.
